I wore my typewriter shirt today.
And a favorite blueberry cardigan.
Matched perfectly to a Jones Market necklace a dear friend gave me.
I felt loved.
So even though I'm not a big fan of selfies, I snapped one anyway. Just because I felt so loved on a too-warm day for February with a bright sunshine sky that is usually reserved for Spring.
I'm going to try something new!
Some of you are long time readers, so you know the way I entered blogging was through writing about the teaching of writers. I co-created Two Writing Teachers and spent years blogging about teaching writers. When I stepped away from Two Writing Teachers, I wanted to explore new writing territories. Most of my writing about teaching writers now happens in articles for Choice Literacy and for my upcoming book.
The problem is, there are too many snippets and stories being left in my notebook because I don't have time to turn each story and strategy into an article or a book chapter. I also don't want my blog to become only about teaching writers. (Don't get me wrong, I love teaching writers...and I love writing about other things.)
So I've decided to give my newsletter a little renovation and use it as a place to offer stories, tips, and inspiration for teaching writers. If you're looking for inspiration for teaching and celebrating writers, then won't you become my email friend? You can expect powerful tips and delightful stories about teaching writers, as well as little updates from my corner of the world a few times each month.
Just add your email here and have encouragement for teaching writers delivered right to your inbox!
